Shangri-La Oolong tea (generally pronounced “wu-long”) is the mid-point blend between black tea and green tea in terms of oxidation. It is semi-oxidized and hence produces the characteristics of both green and black tea.
Oolong teas are among the ones that are treasured by tea connoisseurs due to its complexity in characteristics.
A stylish and spicy full-bodied tea with biscuity aromas and smooth tannins. Tending towards green aromas and black flavors, this oolong will intrigue both expert and beginner.
To brew the finest cup of Shangri-La Oolong, use about two grams (the amount of a single tea bag) of tea per 8.5 fl. oz. (a standard US cup) of water of temperature about 87℃ (190℉). In general, use not quite boiling water or let the water cool down for about 45 to 60 seconds after boiling. Steep for about 4 to 5 minutes to enjoy the complex flavors of oolong tea.
*Oolong tea is served without added milk and/or sugar.
